If you’ve upgraded to Thunderbrid 2.0 you can now run the Provider extension that will sync Google Calendar and Thunderbird running the calendar extension.

It’s very easy to setup thanks to bfish.xaedalus.net’s instructions. I tested it out this morning and it worked flawlessly. Ok, maybe one minor issue. It seems that it ‘automagically’ populated my Google username and it wasn’t correct. I had to switch it. But other than that, the directions are dead on and easy to follow.

I’ll play around with it and see if I can get it to also Sync in iCal but I’m not sure if that’ll work. I can subscribe to a Google Calendar in iCal, but not do two way edting unless I buy a third party app. And with Thunderbird in the mix, that’s more like three way editing.

But, back on topic, syncing Google Calendar and Thunderbird is now as easy as pie and I’m very impressed!!
